NACS Kindergarten Parent Workshop
NACS is excited to offer a workshop for parents of incoming NACS Kindergartners. This workshop will be one hour, and will provide parents with information and resources to help prepare children for kindergarten. There will be a brief introduction, and then four, ten-minute sessions with kindergarten teachers to learn about expectations, get resources, and gain ideas of activities to do in order to help kids get ready for kindergarten. We ask that this workshop is for parents only (no children), and you can register by clicking on the graphic below. You do not need to register to attend, but we will be preparing resources and it would be helpful to have an idea of attendance numbers. If you have questions, please feel free to email our Literacy Coordinator at [email protected]
